          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I am reviewing the dishwasher I received as HDT565SSNSS although the description of this item on Home Depot's website appears to be slightly different.
          This is the basic, all stainless steel model without the extras like tall item jets or True Half loads. Of course, you can run any size load you choose but there is no button for the water saver, concentrated Top Half, Bottom Half options. I think GE uses stock pictures and stock descriptions so please pay close attention and double check.
          This unit is very nice looking, great, simplistic design. The all stainless interior is worth more to me than options I almost never use. I have always been a person who uses the Heavy Wash cycle on Read More
          I am reviewing the dishwasher I received as HDT565SSNSS although the description of this item on Home Depot's website appears to be slightly different.

Of course, you can run any size load you choose but there is no button for the water saver, concentrated Top Half, Bottom Half options. I think GE uses stock pictures and stock descriptions so please pay close attention and double check.
          This unit is very nice looking, great, simplistic design. The all stainless interior is worth more to me than options I almost never use. I have always been a person who uses the Heavy Wash cycle on dishwashers and washing machines and never bother with the other options. 
          I find the 50 decibel rating to be about right. The motor is quiet enough but running water is running water, you're going to hear it. The insulation consists of the typical black, rubber like material on top and an odd, nearly see through "blanket" made of what looks like batting. It was hard to get the dishwasher in place without this batting clumping up. GE could do a lot better than that, I'm sure.
          Another installation note. After 2 appointments, a call to Home Depot,  and their call to GE, it was determined I needed to order a special bracket to install.  I had a friend come over and within  3 minutes, actually looking at the installation manual (installers never did) we discovered this unit DOES come with the brackets if you have granite countertops. They're side brackets making it possible to secure to the wood cabinet instead.
          I think by now, granite is a normal feature in kitchens and need not be treated as if they're dealing with a composite of Unicorn dust and rare Mars minerals, for Pete's sake. I stayed home 2 days because GE didn't even know what they included in the box!!
          There's just no excuse for the GE representative to be ignorant of the parts and installation procedures. I highly recommend you visit a Home Depot store to get all the particulars for your needs, the online ordering system recommends parts but the parts I actually received were incompatible. I needed to run to the store to get a universal adapter to fit the drain on the garbage disposal. 
          As for the dishwasher itself, it does a very good job cleaning soiled dishes.  Since I was testing this unit, I just scraped and loaded with abandon.  Everything came out clean, without exception. I used the recommended Finish Quantum pods that came in a sample pack of two and JetDry which was also a sample pouch that was included.
          Drying is another issue. I ran two loads, one with Dry Boost regular and one with Dry Boost High. Both cycles left the washer itself very wet. The regular boost left items wet, the high boost actually dried better.
          You will be using more energy than the yellow tag claims, if you want dry dishes.
          I am concerned with the wet walls and can not see myself getting in there with a towel after each load. 
          The option buttons are very sensitive, you don't need to press..if you do, they won't work. I found out that the hard way. 
          The status lights are not explained in the literature very well. Yellow flashing means you didn't press start or you opened mid cycle.  Solid yellow means its washing, and solid white means the job is done.
          I live in a very humid climate and now I wonder what will happen if I don't run the washer for a week.
          I have mixed feelings about this unit. It cleans very well, looks great, and is very reasonably priced. If you're looking for fancy, upgrade this model to one with more features  but if you just want to get clean dishes, this does the job.
          I am not thrilled with the customer support from GE as we were trying to get it installed and not happy with the remaining moisture in the machine.  Read Less

          Excellent Coverage from this one half gallon on Colorback mulch dye concentrate. I was able to reuse an old battery operated sprayer from another brand for swift, even coverage. I suggest you use something that offers a continuous spray flow for the best coverage . I live in South Florida and weeds grow everywhere and fast. Mulch alone will not stop them here so I used a trick from a Master Gardener. Newspaper blocks weeds when wet. It just smothers them. I run mine through the shredder, use the mulch dye for better camouflage, then cover with mulch. I love this product because it lasts through the rain, is easy to apply, and makes a frustrating job a little easier. Recommended

          The FT28VCB LED bronze twin head flood series is ideal in outdoor areas where a low-maintenance solution is required. Producing over 2200 Lumens, this small but effective floodlight can be wall or eave mounted for maximum versatility. Upon installation, choose between one of 3 color temperatures: 3000K (soft white), 4000K (bright white) or 5000K (daylight) to ensure that you always have the right color light. This outdoor rated product utilizes a durable rust free polycarbonate housing.

          To me, there is no difference between the lighting on the difference lumens/wattage of the three fixtures I tested. They are so close and used in an open area. All were great, all looked fantastic when done.
          These HALO LED Outdoor Security Lights are a lot smaller than I expected. I have three versions of this fixture, two floodlights and one that is a Dawn to Dusk model. There are various lumens ratings as well. For my application, they weren't an easy install but that is not completely the fault of the fixture. The lights I am replacing were installed when my house was built in 1973 and the cutout in the eaves was to accommodate a much larger, more substantial floodlight fixture. In Read More

In order to use these on a permanent basis, I will need a plasterer or carpenter to close up the hole or an electrician to wire a different spot. I did hook each up to test the lights and ease of use which is A plus. They are bright and easy to operate, the light fills the backyard area perfectly. I like the Dawn to Dusk feature for the one area and I have the others on the light switch to turn off and on when needed. The lights are bright and I don't need to illuminate everything all the time.
          The finish is a very nice dark bronze and this comes with everything you need to set up very quickly..if you have the proper space for installation.

          Answer:

          EnviroLite LED troffers are the perfect solution for grid ceiling lighting needs. These commercial light fixtures are designed to save energy and lower maintenance costs. The integrated LED light source inside uses 30% less power to produce the same amount of light as fluorescent ceiling fixtures. The LED light source is built into the troffer so you don't have to replace light bulbs ever. Because it's LED, you will never hear the hum that fluorescent light fixtures make. This commercial lighting troffer uses only 35-Watt to provide 3000 Lumens of bright white 4000K CCT light. The sturdy frame is easy to handle and installs directly into a grid ceiling using the built-in T-bar clips. The white lens sits flush to the ceiling and distributes the light evenly; you won't see dark spots or tube lines. EnviroLite commercial lighting troffers are built to last for 50,000 hours and come with a 5-year warranty. They are UL listed and IC rated for contact with insulation and can be installed in damp locations. They accept 120/277-Volt input and are fully dimmable using a 0-10-Volt dimmer. These troffers are DLC listed to qualify for commercial lighting rebates and special incentives in certain areas.
